Whole-exome sequencing (WES) has led to an exponential increase in identification of causative variants in mitochondrial disorders (MD). We performed WES in 113 MD suspected patients from Polish paediatric reference centre, in whom routine testing failed to identify a molecular defect. WES was performed using TruSeqExome enrichment, followed by variant(More)
Several trap plasmids (enabling positive selection of transposition events) were used to identify a pool of functional transposable elements (TEs) residing in bacteria of the genus Paracoccus (Alphaproteobacteria). Complex analysis of 25 strains representing 20 species of this genus led to the capture and characterization of (i) 37 insertion sequences (ISs)(More)
Epileptic encephalopathies (EE) include a range of severe epilepsies in which intractable seizures or severe sub-clinical epileptiform activity are accompanied by impairment of motor and cognitive functions. Mutations in several genes including ion channels and other genes whose function is not completely understood have been associated to some EE. In this(More)
Thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections (TAAD) are silent but possibly lethal condition with up to 40 % of cases being hereditary. Genetic background is heterogeneous. Recently next-generation sequencing enabled efficient and cost-effective examination of gene panels. Aim of the study was to define the diagnostic yield of NGS in the 51 TAAD patients and(More)
In this article, 'A classification approach for DNA methylation profiling with bisulfite next-generation sequencing data' Cheng and Zhu proposed a classification procedure based on a mixture of bino-mial model to make binary calls for methylation status. Whereas we find this approach interesting and competitive to method described in Lister et al. (2011)(More)
